A General Informartion About Short Hairstyle

Posted by Short Hair Styles on June 29, 2009

Most people agree that having a good hair day can do much to improve your mood and confidence. Many complain however, that those good hair days are so very rare! Having the right hairstyle can no doubt increase the odds and make life much easier.

Super Short Hair StylesA well-cut short hairstyle can draw the eye to your best features and make you feel and act sexy and full of confidence. Add to that the numerous styles one can experiment with, using styling products effectively, and it is obvious why more women opt for short hair. Because it is easy to maintain and work well on different types of hair, short hairstyles have been fashionable the last few decades and will be for decades to come.

Different factors play a role in determining which style would suit you best. Whether you opt for pixie, shaggy, bob, pageboy or any other short style it is important to take the texture of your hair, shape of your face and lifestyle into consideration.

Knowing what type of face you have can make choosing a flattering short hairstyle much easier. By using a photo where you look straight at the camera and cutting out your face, you can quite easily determine the shape.

If you are one of those lucky individuals with an oval face, you can wear anything from pixie to sleek with a center parting. Hair swept back from the face will enhance and bring out your features. Extra heavy bangs that cover your features should be avoided.

A style that is slightly longer than the chin, shaped and softened around the edges, flatters a square face. This gives the illusion of length to your face. Hair should not be cut shorter than, or in line with the chin, as this would make the face appear squarer. Avoid center partings and straight bangs.

For someone with a heart shaped face balance between the forehead and chin is very important. Layered hair shaped along the face near the chin, thick at the bottom and with layered bangs will provide fullness where needed. Straight styles, which cling to the face, would accentuate the narrow jaw line and is not recommended.

To create a slimming effect to a round face some volume at the top is necessary. Layered in a shaggy style at the crown and longer than the chin, will add length to your face. Spiky hair is unfortunately not suitable for a round face.

Although each season brings new variations, the bob is truly a timeless hairstyle. Straight hair with fine to medium texture looks great in a bob. Flattering for oval and heart shaped faces, people with round or square faces should rather think twice.

There are plenty of exciting short hairstyles out there that will suit you. The secret is to find a good stylist who will be honest with you and who can suggest appropriate styles considering the shape of your face, hair type and lifestyle. You should leave the salon with a song in your heart, feeling sexy and filled with confidence. Let your stylist show you techniques to create the salon look at home. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Great Short Hair Styles

Posted by Short Hair Styles on June 29, 2009

MORE THAN ANY other factors, the texture, bend and amount of your hair must govern your choice of a hairdo. I emphasize this point because in my experience the failure to understand it is a leading cause of women’s dissatisfaction with their hair, and their hairdressers. Great hair styles depend on a proper analysis of your hair.

Short Hair Styles For WomenThe woman who is trying to work against nature must spend endless hours fussing with her hair and gets no better results than the one who has chosen an easily cared-for hairdo. A successful hairdo is one where the hair will spring easily back into place. Any other kind means you have to force the hair to do something that is not natural to it. If you choose one of the latter, a great deal more hair care will be required, and satisfactory results are questionable.

First you must examine your hair with a cold and impersonal eye. Study it as it actually is, not as you would like it to be or as it used to be. How fine or coarse is your hair? How thick or thin? Finally, and one of the most important questions, how much bend (natural wave or curl) does it have?

To answer these questions, first wash your hair. While it is wet, begin manipulating it with your fingers. Examine the top, back and sides by sections. By doing so you will be able to determine the amount of bend in your hair. This bend will help you decide on the style. When you locate a natural bend, if there is any, you can utilize it for a style that will be practicable for you.

It is possible that some sections will have more bend, some less, some none. The bend which can be utilized best is that found at the temples, the sideburns, and the top of the hair. You will realize, of course, that the amount of bend will vary with the length of the strand of hair. If your hair is long and shows no bend, this is what to do: isolate several sections of your hair, each section containing between one dozen or two dozen hairs.

Cut these sections shorter and shorter till you get them down to one inch in length. At each cutting manipulate them with your fingers and comb, to test them for bend. When you find the length at which one or all the sections respond, you should use that length as a measuring stick for the rest of the hair.

As I have said, it often happens that one section will have bend, the other none, so common sense will tell you to use the bend for movement or variation of line, and leave the rest as straight as possible.

When you discover one section with bend you must search carefully along its outer edges, to see how far it goes.

While on this subject, I must make it clear that finding bend in the hair applies to curly as well as straight hair, because even curly hair has some straighter sections which can be utilized for their straightness. Great hair styles will take account of these variations.

Once you have decided on the amount of bend your hair possesses, then you must think in terms of hairdos and whether you want to utilize all of the bend or just some of it.

Your next step is to begin thinking about the texture (fine, medium or coarse).

Fine hair has a tendency to frizz when curled too tightly. It looks its best when allowed to fall softly and naturally, with a minimum of curling.

Coarse hair will hold a curl or wave if you don’t curl it too tightly or wave it too much.

Medium hair is the most pliable and can assume many shapes.

Thin hair must be made to look thicker. One of the best ways is to wash it frequently and keep it free from oil. When hair is freshly washed it looks twice as thick.

Nevertheless, Egyptians would normally wear elaborate wigs during special ceremonies. In ancient Greece, women typically wore their hair quite long and pulled back, and quite often dyed it with red henna.

Women from ancient Rome used to follow Greek hair fashion very closely; one noteworthy difference is that the women of Rome were more likely to have their hair dyed blonde. The women of Rome also used curling irons and hair dressing become a very popular trade.

Looking to a different region; in the East, it was a requirement that all Muslims have their hair hidden when in public, and in the region of China, hair symbolized the marital status of an individual. If a woman wore her hair long and braided it was typically a sign that a women was unmarried. If the woman were married she would wear it pulled back and in a knot.

Styles in the African nations differed and were typically a symbol of the persons social status. Some general African hair styles long hair, braids, and shaved heads.

Deep tones of eggplant, burgundy, and mahogany are a great compliment to a dark brown or black hair color. Tactically placed highlights, lowlights, or panels can heighten quality and add that X-factor to your personality.

If you’re already blessed with naturally curly hair then forget the curling iron and go natural. Simply shampoo and condition your hair and then individually wrap each curl with a gelled finger for definition. You may decide to get the bottom part of hair on your head shaved.

For the rest of us, you’ll need to use a good curling iron with thermal protection to keep from burning your hair. Comb your hair so there are not any knots – make it as smoot as possible for best results. Get as close to your head as possible and curl only small amounts of hair at a time. It should take about 5-10 seconds to curl each section. Let the curling iron leave the curl and permit the curling iron to cool down without touching. This will let the curl set. Go to the next section of hair. Make sure the ends of locks are in the curling iron before closing the iron. When the curls are cooled down, loosen with fingers and spray lightly with your favorite hairspray.
